The Future of lighting is here and its bright !

Lighting technologies have come a long way since the days of the candle, but many people are still in the dark when it comes to understanding LED lighting, let’s take a look at some of the most common questions.

What are the main benefits of LED lights?

LEDs produce more light but use up to 80% less energy than traditional lighting products. LEDs are also safer because they operate at a much lower temperature thus reducing the risk of house fires. Because LEDs last up to 50,000 hours, customers also save money on replacement costs.

How much money can I save with LEDs?

 How long is a piece of string? Every situation is different but LED bulbs are designed to use up to 80% less energy than traditional halogen down lights. You will also save achieve considerable savings in replacement costs because good quality LEDs last up to 50,000 hours.

What is the main difference between halogen and LED?

Halogen downlights waste 90% of energy as heat. LEDs lose only 10% of energy as heat.

Why are LEDs environmentally friendly?

LEDs don’t contain harmful chemicals like mercury. Because LEDs last up to 50000 hours, they don’t take up as much space at the landfill, and because they use less energy, they have a lower carbon footprint.

Can LEDs be used with dimmers?

Not all LEDs are created equal, but the LED downlights that we recommend are compatible with leading edge, trailing edge and universal dimmers. Dimmer compatibility is important, so if you have any questions about how LEDs will work with your dimming system, speak to us we would love to help

Can I just change the globe to LED?

No .The reason for this is simple; LEDs compatibility with existing halogen transformers is unproven. Furthermore, running a 50w halogen transformer with a 5-13 w LED does not provide long term lamp life, provides poor light output, light flickering and illumination delay

Hi My husband said he was going to call you but i know he wont so i will pass on his comments. We had Hayden install ceiling fans and wired smoke detector at our rental property at Fulham Gardens . Phil was incredibly impressed with the proffesional manner that Hayden went about the job , he was methodical and extremely tidy. We will need to get some jobs done at our home and will definitely get Hayden to do the work !
